A school community approach to cyber safety.

A message from Sorrento Primary School

We stand together as a community and hold true to our shared vision.

Our shared values are evident through our involvement in community-based programmes and supportive approach to managing student behaviour.

We recognise the importance of working with families to offer best practices around the use of technology both at home and in the school. Building links with Family Zone and ySafe helps strengthen those practices.

To complete the circle of safety for your child, however, we need your participation.  

On the 11 FEB, you will receive an email from Family Zone inviting you to activate your account and commence protecting your children's devices.

The school has already installed the Mobile Zone app on your child’s school iPad.   There is no need for you to install any software/app. However you do still need to activate your Family Zone account.   Instructions on how to do this will be included in the email you will receive from Family Zone.

 

What do you need to do?

1

Set up your Family Zone account

2

Install Mobile Zone on your children's devices, run and install.

3

Manage via our Zone Manager App. Download to your own Apple or Android device.
